Webcomics Wednesday: THE AUTOMAN’S DAUGHTER

I’ll admit it: I can’t say no to a great pun. While some might consider that a character flaw, this week, my insatiable hunger for wordplay led me straight into the arms of a great webcomic. The Automan’s Daughter (get it?), written by Mike Stamm, drawn by Shadia Amin, and colored by Sarah Stern, takes place in […]

Webcomics Wednesday: Britt Sabo’s ALL NIGHT

In this week’s Webcomics Wednesday, we’re taking a short trip to a terrible future.

Webcomics Wednesday: Ana Critchfield’s Phantasmagoria

It’s October, and I’m deep in the midst of watching 31 horror films in 31 days. I have horror on the brain, so naturally, only a spooky webcomic will do. Ana Critchfield’s Phantasmagoria, with its scritchy-scratchy artwork, eerie atmosphere, and hints of terrible secrets, fits the bill perfectly. (Be forewarned: There are scary images ahead.) The […]

Being a Teenager is Surreal: An Interview with A. S. King

Assigning books in the youth department at Booklist can sometimes prove to be a tense process, since we’re all passionate readers and love some of the same authors. But the atmosphere is never stormier than when a new A. S. King novel arrives. When Still Life with Tornado appeared on the mail cart, my colleague Julia and I, […]

Webcomics Wednesday: Tillie Walden’s Sweet and Unknown (plus some more!)

This week’s Webcomics Wednesday is a bit of a departure from my usual routine. I often cover plot-driven, long-form stories that unfold over months or years, but there’s a whole world of beautiful short-form comics out there, and today I’m showcasing a particularly great one. Tillie Walden’s “Sweet and Unknown” is a poetic, moving meditation on longing […]

Webcomics Wednesday: Jamal Campbell’s The Immortal Nadia Greene

Webcomics Wednesday: Jamal Campbell’s The Immortal Nadia Greene

Normally, when I start a Webcomics Wednesday post, I focus on the plot first and get to the artwork somewhere in the middle. But when it comes to Jamal Campbell’s The Immortal Nadia Greene, the art—which is immediately what drew me in—deserves top billing. (Not that I’m ignoring the story or anything; we’ll get there, I promise). Campbell’s […]

Webcomics Wednesday: Pascalle Lepas’ Wilde Life

Webcomics Wednesday: Pascalle Lepas’ Wilde Life

Some small towns have the best secrets—behind genial neighbors, well-tended lawns, and a noticeable lack of hustle and bustle hides magic, both good and sinister. That’s absolutely the case in this week’s installment of Webcomics Wednesday, Pascalle Lepas’ Wilde Life, which follows an errant Chicagoan as he tries to escape his big city problems in middle […]
